what to do in Germany is unending. Munich historical sites. Nurenberg additional historical sites. Garmisch, just south of Munich. many quaint restaurants & hotels. No far from Garmisch is Oberammergau. German center for wood carvings and the passion play every 10 years (check your calender). If a t…our, go to specific places & remain for a day or so. Don't take a tour where you are schedulted to VISIT 12 or 15 locations. You will be too tired to see much, too much rushing. slow down....... Added Answer: (Maserati23) If you want my advice, stay away from the tourist sites like Munich and pretty much all of Bavaria(Bayern in German) and research through the internet all the various castles and cathedrals one can find by visiting western/central German cities and towns. Within 1.5 hours from my house is the magnificent KÃ¶lner Dom, or Cologne Cathedral as you might call it, where the bones of the Magi rest in a golden coffin at the back of the alter. It's the tallest cathedral in the world and you can climb up to the top if you dare. There is also a castle nearby where the German flag was "born." Learn your basic German and get a hotel outside the city to experience the quaintness of rural German life. The closer you are to natives the better your vacation will be as you get to experience Germany for what it really is, not some Bierstein-collecting nation of Lederhosen-wearing Bavarian-hillbillies who go yodelling even so it is more an Austrian tradition.

Yes, definitely, Germany does have taxes. Just like in the US you have to pay your annual taxes. The only real difference is that the taxes when you purchase "stuff" is included in the price. I personally find this system of tax paying to be satisfying.

Yes. Germany more or less finally became a single unified country in1871.

In 1949, three of those (the USA, UK and France parts) joined tobecome the "Federal Republic of Germany", or West Germany. Thefourth part (the one controlled by the USSR) became the "DemocraticGerman Republic" or East Germany. West Germany was a republic, likethe USA and France. East Germany was a communist dictatorshipcontrolled by the USSR. Again, Berlin was split in the same manner,which caused problems for West Berlin, because Berlin was right inthe middle of East Germany. East Berlin became the capital city ofEast Germany; the city of Bonn became the capital of West Germany. In 1990, East Germany's dictatorship finally ended and it became apart of West Germany, and West Germany dropped the "West" part andis just Germany now. It is still officially called the FederalRepublic of Germany, and Berlin, which is also reunified, is thecapital of all Germany again. (MORE)
A country cannot of course annex itself. You are possibly referringto the unification of Germany after the fall in 1989 of EastGermany's Communist regime. The reason for that was, that West Germany and East Germany alwayshad been one country before 1945. After Nazi Germany's defeat in1945 the Allies… divided it into 4 occupation zones with the intentto return government of those zones to the Germans after things hadbeen put back in order. But then Russia decided to install in its occupation zone a GermanCommunist government and declared its intention to keep it underits control and make it a separate country. For most of itsexistence, East Germany was only recognized as an independent Stateby its fellow Communist countries. West Germany never accepted theSoviet "annexation" of its eastern lands. When Communism fell, eastand west Germans quickly decided to join up again. (MORE)
